Musical styles and genres have always been blended together, as cultures intersect, to form new sounds and push the boundaries of experimentation. This has been felt in the UK where one of the most exciting forms of music to emerge in the last decade, Asian Underground, is a world of tabla-driven beats, Indian classical samples and frenetic drum'n'bass, trip-hop and techno. Including artists that have achieved phenomenal success around the globe, The Rough Guide To The Asian Underground showcases this British-Asian hybrid with a collection of solid scene classics and fresh, unreleased material.
